Just stabstabstab all day with the HWS. It’s silly-fast and does decent damage =]
Use a Morningstar or something if you want better slashes and overheads, they turned the HWS into a little poking stick, just ignore those spikes all 'round, it’s all about the one right on the end.
I agree. It’s stab is super fast and does a decent amount of damage. When I stab, it sometimes gets people off guard on how fast it is.
And you can try combo feinting if you don’t like the long times.
The holy water sprinkler is already pretty strong though. It has a good amount of damage for swing, overhead, and stab along with it’s great pierce-blunt damage.
Comboing with it might be bad, but it balances out the speed and damage of it.
